On Wednesday, an Indian student from Barnala in Punjab perished in Ukraine, where a battle is raging following the Russian military’s invasion. The student died after suffering an Ischemic stroke.
The news: Chandan Jindal (22) attended the Vinnytsia National Pyrogov Memorial Medical University in Vinnytsia, Ukraine.
- Jindal was admitted to Emergency Hospital Vinnytsia (Kyivska street 68) after suffering an Ischemic stroke, according to published sources. He took his final breath earlier in the day.
- His father has written to the Indian government to arrange for the return of his body.
- The Centre is also attempting to recover the body of a Karnataka student who was killed in a shelling in Kharkiv a day ago.
Because Ukraine’s airspace is closed to passenger flights, bodies may be transported through neighbouring nations, as has been the case with trapped Indians.
